Raw Truffles- Charoset Passover Dessert

Move over something sweet, there’s a new Charoset חֲרֽוֹסֶת in town!  This one is good enough for your Seder service, and good enough to serve for dessert.  These raw, delicious, sweet balls are a blend of traditional Ashkenazi, Mizrahi, and Sephardic flavors, and observe the restrictions of each so enjoyable by all!

Makes about 28-30, 1 inch balls

20160423_102213Into the food processor:

2 cups dried medjool dates

2 cups dried mango

3/4 cup golden raisins

1 cup pistachios

1/4 cup orange juice

3 tablespoons simple syrup or agave

Optional 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (depending on Kosher tradition)

Optional: 1/4 cup coconut shreds

In a separate bowl:

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

Once you get a nice working consistency like this, you can use a large soup spoon to portion out the ball size you’d like.


Then you roll the mixture in the cinnamon sugar you prepared in a separate bowl


And then place them in a parchment paper lined container, and stick them in the fridge for an hour (or up to 2-3 days)  and then serve.


Makes an excellent hors d’oeuvre for a passover party, but is also a totally great Charoset for your Seder meal, and even a dessert while the youngins search for that Afikomen.

Happy Pesach!
